What is the best time to visit Lombok?

The best time to visit Lombok is from July to August. These months are considered dry in Lombok, and they certainly lack any rainfall. Lombok is a tropical island, so the weather is pretty much the same all year round. The peak season in Lombok lasts from May to October, and it does get crowded. There are fantastic hiking trails present on the Lombok island which are best experienced during the dry days, especially the one that leads to Mount Rinjani. By the end of October, the wet season starts in Lombok which continues till March. It gets regarded as the off-season for this tourist destination. Lombok appears greener in the wet season. The temperature gets higher during the wet season than in the drier months. If you want to snorkel or scuba dive around the Gilis, then you should visit during September and November for the best experience because of favourable water conditions. The shoulder season in Lombok is mainly in April and May. The weather in Lombok tends to be a mix of wet and dry as the climate moves towards the drier season. The temperature tends to be colder than in the preceding months. If you want to experience Lombok with ease, then do visit during the wetter months. People visiting in November or December may find themselves to be a part of a unique festival called Perang Topat in Lombok, which includes friendly rice cake war among the locals.
